The demonization of us in the press has a deeper, more sinister, goal folks.
Let's go back to that Mormon History lesson.
People all the way up to the President were notified of the uncostitutional persecution going on, they were unwilling to fight for them because they were so unpopular.
There were good, decent, kind people all around them who sympathised with them. These people supported them initially then faded because they too were targeted and demonized. Once again, starting to sound familiar? Eventually they stopped fighting and just wanted things to go back to safe and normal, so they looked the other way. We need to fight against this right now! before any support is intimidated away.
